See the moon ‘jump’ over Uranus in the predawn sky this week

Look to the eastern sky before dawn on Friday (June 24) and Saturday (June 25) and the moon will appear to have jumped over Uranus.

On Friday “the old crescent will shine a generous palm’s width to the upper left (or 6.5 degrees to the celestial southwest) of the small, size 5.8 speck of Uranus” writes Chris Vaughan, amateur astronomer with SkySafari Software who oversees Space.com’s Night Sky calendar.
